|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The squash bugs are closely related to the shieldbugs, and similar in many respects. This species is one of the largest, with particularly long antennae, which often get broken early in its life. It can occur on a wide variety of food plants, all in the dock family (including rhubarb), so it occurs in a correspondingly wide variety of habitats such as gardens,wood margins, rough pastures and elsewhere. It is widespread and abundant over much of central and southern Europe, but rare in the north.
Thanks for looking.

I like so much your POV and the pose catched, with the insect in full extension along the frame.
It's very good the fill flash usedm you got a grat illumination all over.
Very interesting the effect got with the DOF, and the blurred petal.
